Nice break from the 14 foot buildings being thrown at us for 2 days. We were the only boat out yesterday as all others had their guests get sick.
We started the day where we left off yesterday but the fish were just not in the mood this morning. We decided it must be karma for our amazing day yesterday so we decided to head of shore for a few hours and see if a marlin might bite, not expecting anything but something to do. Well Eric and I were born under a lucky star so it was.......MARLIN MARLIN MARLIN! Unbelievable , I wanted a shot at a striped marlin as I have never caught one and 20 minutes into our troll Bam! The fight was on after a perfectly thrown pitch bait behind one of the teasers, 45 minutes later after a amazing fight on light tackle and I am now in the striped marlin club 140 pounds woot!
